I'm trying to design a loft bed so I can compact the shit in my room to make space for a power cage [spoiler]while fighting depression[/spoiler]. I'm unsure if I should make the corners with 4x4 or two 2x6 at an angle. I've got basic tools, like a table saw, skill saw, router, etc etc but I don't want it fancy. I just want it solid. If I used 4x4 I could cut out..uh..notches at various points along the corner posts so that some support boards would fit into and make it all look flush and neat, but a lot of my tools I mentioned earlier really struggle to make straight cuts and I don't know how to fix them. Also kind of poor at the moment, and while I can expense the cost of some lumber, I really don't want to throw a lot of money at fixing the tools just yet.

I'm a 6'2" 230 lb dude. I'm on a cut again and dropping the weight, but I'm worried that the boards might not hold me. I really don't want to drop and destroy my computer. I have a tendency to overenforce things, and my friends call me a dwarf because of it. Fuck em, I love the feel of a solid ass piece of furniture.

I think a waste of money would be trying to heat an open loft. A few years back I hung metal in a friend's shop, and he's set up like me with insulated walls with OSB and metal ceilings. The echo is not an issue with his, but I do have more area. Either way I'll deal with it considering I've got over half of it installed already.
>>
>>1504387
Oh. Well shit.i think insulation and wood would have saved you some effort but you're in it now.

Been in 2 shops and a shop style resturaunt we built where we had to sprayfoam it after because of the noise.

I want to start work on a pipe(like, tobacco pipe)
I have a 2x4 of some hard wood but I'm not sure what to make the stem and mouthpiece out of, any suggestions? I'm debating between making the pipe and stem all one piece, or doing it in two seperate pieces.
And i was wondering what kind of finish would be good for it? I don't want it to be bare wood.

>>1504587
Use a plastic ink pen for the stem? Heat it up and shape it? I clear bick would look sweet if you crammed an led in the pipe

That works for charging the newer models, but if the thing got wet, you need to drop it in a bowl of rice and then microwave it.

I'm working on my loft bed right now. I have acces to my school tools workshop(currently in last year of HS). I used 70x70mm posts for tye legs on my bed. You could probably use reinforced mortice joints like pic related if you don't have access to tools or machinery.
Also ensure you have proper clearance, they're called "loft" beds for a reason.

Here after some days of sledgehammering and jackhammering. Sadly the floor beams are rotten through so I'll have to replace the floor entirely. Probably insulate it and pour concrete, nice chance to install floor heating.

That weird piece of wall cannot be removed as it is supporting. It was once a whole supporting wall but it was removed at some point in time and replaced by an I-beam resting on its remains.

Just finished welding everything together for my Home made plate bender (press brake?).

Last part is picking up the 1/2 in drill bit to put mounting holes on the bench. I'm pretty happy since almost all the material came from the scrap bin at work so materials were free.

Got the idea from Colin Furze on YouTube to make my own. Felt good planning, drawing, itemizing, prioritizing, and finally putting together this beast. Cant wait to use it with schematics that requiring bent plates.

Hoping I can bend another of these flat plates you see in picture one, into something like this.

Its .135in steel. This one was bent with vice clamps and a sledge mostly. With some sort of harness system I want to fool around with making a ballistic plate.

The primary purpose of the press brake will be 16gauge steel though.

i've been putting together this portable apartment air compressor for a while, based on a fridge compressor. now it has an automatic pressure switch, unloader valve, water filter, and dessicant on the input. pretty much everything a compressor needs to have, and it's ultra quiet.

>>1513747
Wow, any idea how much air it moves?

>>1513752
not too much. it takes about a minute and a half to pump that tank up from 85 to 120 psi. this is a small compressor from a mini fridge or water cooler, a full size fridge compressor might move more air but not much more. it's the price you pay for quiet. I won't be doing any sandblasting with it for sure.

Oi vey she works! Lucky for me being incapable of building any wood structures square hasn’t hindered the performance of the lights.

I kinda want to find a couple small hinges and a latch to make a door on the front. With the door, I could jam the 120V AC cord and the 12V DC charger cord inside the box and open it up to grab whichever one is needed at the time.

Man.

Everyone i fucking know and everyone i see with an air compressor is a fucking idiot.

Or i am?

Why in right FUCK would you not trench a line? Put that piece of shit 200 feet away outside. Run a breaker for it, a line to drain water, and an air line to the shop.

It's like those idiots that always mount the generator on the camper or put it 4 feet away and scream all day. ROLL OUT A FUCKING CORD AMD THROW PLYWOOD BETWEEN IT AND US SO I AINT GOTTA FUCKING SCREAM OVER IT!

I annoyed my SIL by inexplicably managing to ignore her instructions on how to crochet and somehow taught myself to knit using a single crochet hook, so I'm now "knitting" a blanket.
I already crochet, but I've never used a hook (I crochet with tweezers, which she thinks is weird and wrong), so she tried to teach me 'the right way.'

Today you are the idiot. I live in an apartment and I move around a lot so I can't have any kind of permanent installation, so I did this.

Excuse me good sir, I was just using my Knipex(tm) to fix and replace some sprinkler heads.

I’m gonna get me a 12” pair soon. I believe the girl got me the 10” Pliers Wrench for Xmas.

Neat. I feel pretty hardcore programming those things in C, let alone actually designing one.

No idea on IC layouts, I assume that's beyond most DIYers resources though

Be sure that 2x4 is treated! Wouldnt want your pipe to rot! Also GREAT idea about using the pen!

I swear sometimes everyone on this site is 10 years old.

Digging footings in wet soil, having an issue with water filling into the holes. Could I precast my concrete in sonotubes to put in the holes to displace the water? Or just I just remove the water as much as I can and place the sand compact and pour concrete?

just remember one important thing: drain out the oil, and replace it with something else. Mineral oil or regular 30-weight oil. They come with compressor oil that's designed to mix with the refrigerant and be circulated. If you don't replace it, eventually it'll all come out (and nasty up your air) and the compressors will die.
I'm running mineral oil in mine, the air comes out nice and clean and it runs reasonably cool.
